Credible, imaginative and unexpected - brilliant!
What other book might you compare A Colder War to, and why?
Others have been comparing it against Le Carre and Forsyth, but I suggest one should take this book on its own merit. This new master (well to me) sits along side the old masters. If you enjoy them, you will also enjoy this book too.

Entertaining spy novel
Well constructed and entertaining spy novel. Not quite the depth of Le Carre but has good pace and better than most current writers. Narrator grates at first but soon forgot about that as I got absorbed in the story
